Man-O-War Golf Course – the celebrated Dan Maples design in the golf-rich Myrtle Beach area – continues its reign of more than 25 years as one of the ultimate “must plays” in the Southeast U.S.
Playing 6,967 yards from the back tees, the classic par-72 layout is a true “golfer’s paradise” built around a serene 100-acre lake with the unique trait of having water visible on all 18 holes. The water comes into significant play on 12 of the holes rewarding well-executed, thought-out shots.
Man-O-War’s incredibly smooth, custom-built bentgrass greens, often with challenging undulations, have become legendary as the “best to putt” in the region. As the only Myrtle Beach course showcasing beautiful, bentgrass greens, the success is no accident as the putting surfaces were originally conceived and built with the expertise of top agronomic experts factoring in the climatic and topographical characteristics of the region, allowing them to thrive year after year.
GOLF Magazine stated that Man-O-War is the only course in the world with back-to-back island greens (Nos. 14 and 15). Man-O-War’s par-3 15th also ranks among GOLF Magazine’s “Five Most Memorable Island Greens” alongside No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass, the “Alcatraz” hole at PGA West’s Stadium Course and Coeur d’Alene Resort’s movable, floating putting surface.
Man-O-War is additionally known for its exceptional course maintenance due to considerable yearly investments in overseeding with Ryegrass emulating the agronomic practices of top echelon courses like Augusta National. The shotmaker’s 18 features “wall-to-wall” emerald green fairways, rough and putting surfaces providing impeccable course conditions few public facilities can match.
Thanks to a recent comprehensive renovation, the superb bunkers on Man-O-War were completely rebuilt and now display vibrant, eye-catching white sand creating an incredible contrast with the brilliant green fairways and greens.
“What’s so unique and wonderful about Man-O-War is that no two holes play exactly alike with each presenting a different challenge,” says Claude Pardue, owner, founder of Man-O-War. “Come visit us here in Myrtle Beach and discover the magic of Man-O-War firsthand and see why our guests have raved about it for years.”
